Our statewide prison systems are a major problem. There is so much human rights abuses and in many cases horrendous conditions. There is corruption and now with privatization GREED. I have read that the Attorney General is heavily invested in private prisons. I am not saying he is, but I do wonder. US recidivism rates are horrendous for a so-called civilized society. Racism is rampart and our society has created a school to prison pipeline for young black men.
